Did you know that swimming isn’t just great for your physical health, but also your mental health? Scientific research has offered various reasons as to why we may feel these positive effects. More research still needs to be done to confirm some of these findings, but the story so far is promising!
1. Releases endorphins: Swimming, like all forms of exercise, releases endorphins in your brain. These are our all natural, feel-good hormones that increase positivity and bring about a sense of wellbeing and happiness.
2. Reduces stress: There’s a growing interest in the idea that swimming can reduce stress more so than other sports; Furthermore, studies in rates have found that swimming can help to promote the growth of new brain cells in parts of the brain which break down during chronic (long-term) stress. Although this has only been tested in animals so far, the idea follows that this could potentially have the same effect in humans. It’s therefore suggested that swimming might enhance our ability to manage and cope with stress.
3. Soothing effects: It’s thought that swimming is a particularly good way to relax your body, soothe your mind and reduce anxiety. Some spas even play relaxing music that you can only hear when you put your head under the water!
